11:06 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I posted an answer.
And frankly, this is what I'm doing until we get something better
 
@Hitodama you mean there's a global span { display: block; } rule??? wow
 
Rob
And I thought I had too many pings today, now I feel privileged; no I don't. In my situation the other person had a competing answer (a little NAA) and trolled my answer. At a half dozen comments they scored themselves a harassment flag. It was at +2 (woo woo) before the trolling, now it's -1 - really no loss and not worth another second of my time. --- Completely different from your situation.
 
@Rob here get another one
 
Rob
Humor is different from entitlement. I retired last year at 20K, I've enormously cut back and now have nearly double that rep.
@ShadowTheBurningWizard How's your coffee?
 
@Rob long gone, going to make new one actually
Not gone... transformed
 
Rob
11:18 AM
Haha
As long as there's no green fuzz
 
wut
Not green, orange
 
Rob
Shadow's coffee, on his makeshift table.
 
....that is disgusting.
 
It is maturing its flavors ...
 
Rob
At least the cup is clean and Shiney.
 
11:28 AM
@Rob reminds me of yesterday's cheese discussion!
Anyhow, that's the orange I meant:
 
@Rob Shiney Ahuja?
 
CUZ I'M SHINEY!
 
I was a drab little crab once...
 
11:39 AM
@Mithical dab on the drab crab so you can be fab
 
@Fabby? Long time since he was around. :(
 
@ShadowTheBurningWizard probably not global but yep, it must be there, somewhere..
 
Rob
@ShadowTheBurningWizard FabbyRob?
 
12:07 PM
@Rob your soulmate?
:P
This one ^
He's awesome cook
 
alien cuisine, yummy
 
Rob
12:41 PM
@ShadowTheBurningWizard You mean doppelgänger?
 
greener
 
Rob
@ShadowTheBurningWizard er!
 
1:00 PM
Not ganger?
 
1:11 PM
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Hermione?
 
@Hitodama Harry
 
@Hitodama That'd be Granger.
 
@Mithical I know, but I had to try the joke anyway.
 
/me wibbles.
 
1:16 PM
Skeletor avatar highly approved
 
doppelgreener isn't enough
needs to be quadruplegreener
 
in Not a bar, but plays one on TV on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 46 secs ago, by Derpy
@doppelgreener Could you please change your name to doppelgranger? Otherwise my joke won't work because of some "annoying meddling users". :P
 
Annoying and meddling. That's me.
 
"Everyone knows it's Mithical!"
 
@Mithical scary
 
1:30 PM
@Mithical and would they have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for you?
 
@Magisch that's the name of the barbershop quartet i'm in
 
@doppelgreener fair enough
 
Green enough
Three green avatars next to each other.... adorable... :P
 
four
 
1:55 PM
@doppelgreener XD
 
Rob
They are the Barbers of Seville quartet, so three.
 
2:08 PM
WHAT?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The cat has returned!!!!!
 
The cat?
 
CAT? WHERE?
 
: 3
 
QUICK! GET THE CATAPULT! BOLSTER THE BALLISTAS! UNLEASH THE DOGS OF WAR!
(what do you mean, leash laws? We can't have dogs of war on a leash!)
 
UNLEASH => Let Slip
 
2:11 PM
@AdrianMole is a joke :D
APPARENTLY I am not allowed to launch cats with catapults, despite the name
 
No jokes, please! Stack Exchange is a PROFESSIONAL network!
 
@JourneymanGeek so you are the Evil Pugomancer. I knew I was right all along.
 
I've just thrown myself out of SOCVR (too many beers)
… and too many dots!
 
@AdrianMole Chat though :D
@Hitodama naw, I am the terrier that lurks in the night.
 
Rob
2:13 PM
(ミ◕ﻌ◕ミ)ฅ
 
Heh, I tried to submit an app but it wouldn't validate saying "invalid key", so I remove that key. Then it successfully uploaded but I got an email saying "missing key in plist". What eventually got it to work is to not have that key in that plist, but to manually add it to some other plist not in the project, but in the compiled output buried somewhere deep in ~/Library/.
 
@AdrianMole ···🍒···•··· ᗤ ᗣᗣᗣᗣ
 
This whole App Store Connect thing is some dark magic.
 
@Hitodama .-- .... .- - . ...- . .-.
 
@bjb568 very appropriate: cats have always traditionally been common companion for witches and mages.
 
2:18 PM
Witches burn cats, mages listen to them.
 
🧙
🧙‍♀️
 
@AdrianMole Oh, I'm a wizard.
 
In the sense of a sequence of user-directed, pop-up dialog boxes?
 
Hopefully not in the sense of burning cats.
 
2:23 PM
They aren't mutually exclusive.
 
JAD
listening to burning cats?
 
Windows has detected a new animal: Cat on Fire. Do you want to (1) search the web for a solution; (2) Call the fire brigade; (3) Buy gasoline?
 
@AdrianMole ... I do popup a lot, but I also spend a lot of time listening to cats. Mostly my own cat.
 
Cool! But remember: The cat owns you - not vice versa.
 
Owns me? The cat is the puppet master.
 
2:28 PM
Ventriloquist cat? I'm impressed, already.
 
JAD
@AdrianMole gasoline is perfect to make the cat sound like a dog
 
@AdrianMole WOoooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh YOUR CAT IS ON FIREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
 
JAD
throw it on -> WOOOOF.
 
@JAD That's a good (but very poor taste) ole joke!
 
This got seriously weird tho, lets stap.
 
2:29 PM
>_>
Not what I was expecting :D
 
Are we exceeding defined 'epsilons'?
... old timer C++ lingo for tolerance.
 
JAD
@AdrianMole hmm, I know epsilon only as meaning "small number"
5 + epsilon = 5 and a little bit (rounding error)
 
Woops, sorry.
 
JAD
:8159275 uhu
 
what!
 
2:38 PM
I didn't read all of it... apparently people moved on ;)
 
Officially (IIRC) epsilon (ε) is the smallest number such that 1 + ε does not equal 1 (for floating-point types).
Anyway, I need to expand my SE network presence! The science fiction site looks like fun: are many folks here from there?
 
Never been there. @Mithical might hang around there a bit?
 
Based on your profile, @AdrianMole, you might find Bioinformatics interesting.
(The SE site, I mean, not the field in general)
 
The field, in general, pays for my beer! (Whether that defines interesting or not is a whole new can-o-worms, tho!)
 
@AdrianMole I see someone here knows Dwarf Fortress :P
 
JAD
2:48 PM
I tried playing dwarf fortress. I didn't really get it
 
@JAD I doubt someone does :P
 
dwarf fortress felt like chaotic evil older minecraft
 
@AdrianMole I assumed as much from your profile, hence mentioning the site :) We're a new beta site, not much activity yet, but some really good people.
"Good" as in knowledgeable. Also good, for all I know, but I can't really judge that.
 
@terdon I already 'signed up' but (as ever in the field) there's a lot of 'omics stuff, which I tend to avoid. But I'll certainly be keeping an eye...
 
@AdrianMole Yeah, tell me about it. It's like everyone thinks bioinformatics is synonymous with NGS analysis. Drives me up the wall too. And I actually work in NGS analysis these days!
 
3:03 PM
@AdrianMole You can always let people know they can ask about other stuff by asking about other stuff :P
 
JAD
@terdon same with data science tbh
 
I'll try a "How do I get rid of hysteresis in my differential approximation to dynamic, internal carbon dioxide levels?"
… hehe
 
I don't get it :/
 
Exactly! Nor do I.
 
@Tinkeringbell but do you red it?
because you're a red parrot and that was the best pun I got
 
JAD
3:07 PM
@Magisch would that help in any way shape or form?
 
@AdrianMole Actually, speaking as someone who until very recently was a mod on that site, we'd love such questions. Sadly, I can't promise that we'll have the expertise to answer them, but if you could ask and answer yourself that'd be brilliant! We have very few questions that stray outside basic NGS.
 
@Magisch Oh, I read it ;)
 
Or: "What's orange and sounds like a parrot?"
 
@AdrianMole An orange parrot?
 
Very poor: -10!
 
JAD
3:08 PM
wha?
 
The chat is wonderfully confusing today :)
 
Scott C Reynolds on January 09, 2020

From the moment you watched Steve Jobs announce the iPhone, you knew what you wanted to do with your life: you wanted to be a product manager. It was such a massive shift in paradigm that you finally understood what “paradigm” really meant. Anyone could launch a product that made life better, you thought, but you wanted to be a true visionary and create things that made life different.

You switched your major from computer science to psychology because you wanted to live in the head of the consumer. When your classmates were all doing summer internships at blue chip companies where they wouldn’ …

 
Confused? You will be!
 
@JAD t'was a lame pun
Thats like having a coworker named ray and then whenever they say something snappy you go "Ray got quite the sting"
 
Are there puns in Puna?
@Tinkeringbell only if glowing
 
3:11 PM
I am a master of obfuscation (if I can say so, myself)! But that's why I'm good at my job: the academics know what they want, but can't figure out how to get there. I devise the algorithms and write the code that gets them where they (think they) want to be.
 
@Gimby not compared to typical olden days in Den
 
@AdrianMole ... so you talk to cats too
 
Of course! And they talk to me.
 
@AdrianMole this one too?
 
aaah!
 
3:14 PM
@AdrianMole It can be fun, depending on what you're looking for.
 
Where did you get that cat? Where did you get that cat?
 
A google image search also directed me to: nalacat.com/store/nalas-shark-hat
 
@ShadowTheBurningWizard Its spelled "Pune"
 
@JourneymanGeek oops
 
3:19 PM
And no. My dad grew up there :D
 
Too much cats. Can I have a giant rabbit please? :D
 
Always watching.
 
3:28 PM
That's yours, right?
I'm jealous. He? has a strawberry :D
 
He. yah
Barry.
 
@djsmiley2kindarkness duplicate!
 
Barry eat berries?
:P
 
Barry'll try and eat anything.
 
3:29 PM
@djsmiley2kindarkness you posted same pic before, too lazy to find ;)
 
I want to build him a new enclosure, cept... don't really know how
@ShadowTheBurningWizard well it's a good pic! :P
 
On the other hand, nobody posted this yet!
 
He's almost hibernating at the mo
 
@djsmiley2kindarkness why? Cold?
 
@Tinkeringbell That's an abomination unto the lord
a fluffy abomination I really want to pet and cuddle and call george
 
3:31 PM
@ShadowTheBurningWizard cooler, yeah
 
Flemish Giants :D
apparently they're chill buns
 
@Magisch George would be a good name for when I finally can get my own :)
 
@JourneymanGeek Yep, more chill than smaller breeds.
@djsmiley2kindarkness Like, build a whole tank from scratch?
 
@Tinkeringbell yeahhhhhhhhhhhh sounds easy, right>? :S
 
3:32 PM
@djsmiley2kindarkness Not really :P
 
@Tinkeringbell when you get some of them maybe I'll pay you a visit
 
@djsmiley2kindarkness I have a brother that used to be a zookeeper, I could ask him if I see him tomorrow ;)
 
He needs a tank to bathe in, but he lives on land.... so it's a interesting problem building something
 
@Magisch Sure! You'd be more than welcome :)
 
Need a tank that's all like |___         |
`                               |_____|`
errr
 
3:33 PM
Yeah, I get the idea... I played zoo tycoon :P
 
/me gives up :D
yeah something like that.
And needs to be nice and wide.
 
@Glorfindel that HTaccess question needs a fair bit more TLC :D
I was confused over that - hence the non deletion, Might be a better fit off SO too.
 
@djsmiley2kindarkness I'd be almost tempted to advise something like this for starters ;)

Whoever see the spam flag on this it's because it looks to me like it is just an automated scrape of the first paragraph of the question.
 
@Rubiksmoose I went NAA. There's no mischief AFAIK
 
@Machavity Nothing provable at this point, but could be a bot of some sort. I debated between spam, NAA and custom.
In the end, it'll get removed and that's really all that matters.
 
5:31 PM
@Rubiksmoose I went with abusive, it is a red flag for me as well.
 
5:45 PM
Red!!!
 
6:07 PM
@rene It's weird to see Cody without a diamond
 
/me looks in
@Tinkeringbell lol almost works...

Is it possible to flag comments on the blog post, like, I don't know, this one ?
 
@TravisJ I don't think so...
 
I don't either, but I was hoping that a comment in here might raise awareness.
 
@TravisJ O_o
Hard to believe that's still there hours later!
 
err, aren't comments on blog posts approved to be shown?
 
7:27 PM
@curious aaaagree.
 
@user400654 At least sometimes? I don't know if that's for every blog post or not.
 
i know every comment i've left was initially pending
probably just a mistake

A: Underline Overflow™ in links under answers

Adam LearEver look at a line of CSS and think "that seems legit"? I should really stop doing that. The fix is live in production. Thanks for the report!

 
9:01 PM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog And what?

A: Which badge is the rarest?

GlorfindelEach site has a list of badges with the number of times they've been awarded. Not trying to brag, but on this site, i.e. Meta Stack Exchange, the only badge which is awarded only 1 time is Illuminator. Tenacious and Unsung Hero could theoretically be awarded here but there's too much voting for ...

He's totally bragging!
 
9:26 PM
yes
 
Rob
9:51 PM
Bragging that he misses Stella - Question favorited by 100 users.
 
10:14 PM
how do you guys handle links to porn on historically significant locked posts (which can't be flagged)? Looks like a domain expired and was taken over by a porn site. Tried flagging a comment under the post with a custom mod message...but it's on a site where iirc all the mods resigned, and I don't know if SE checks comment flags
 
flag and move on, one day it'l be gotten to
 
well, you can't flag posts that are locked for historical significance, there's only a share link
 
custom flag something else
 
@Troyen You could write up something on the Mod Team or ping a CM in here.

A: What is a historical lock, and what is it used for?

user102937What is a historical lock? A historical lock is a mechanism by which moderators can mark posts as historical artifacts. Questions which are historically locked feature the following post notice: Locked. This question and its answers are locked because the question is off-topic but has histo...

> The system prevents you from being able to flag historically-locked posts; this is because these posts have tended to get lots of frivolous flags in the past. Therefore, if you notice a serious problem with a historically-locked post (e.g. a broken link that has since started serving spam or malware, content that is blatantly offensive, or substantiated requests to have a historical lock removed), post a question on the per-site meta explaining the exact problem.
Contacting might work better, since moderators resigned.
